From the Back Cover
Using techniques developed in the classroom at America Online′s Programmer′s University, Michael Daconta deftly pilots programmers through the intricacies of the two most difficult aspects of C++ programming: pointers and dynamic memory management. Written by a programmer for programmers, this no–nonsense, nuts–and–bolts guide shows you how to fully exploit advanced C++ programming features, such as creating class–specific allocators, understanding references versus pointers, manipulating multidimensional arrays with pointers, and how pointers and dynamic memory are the core of object–oriented constructs like inheritance, name–mangling, and virtual functions.
Covers all aspects of pointers including: pointer pointers, function pointers, and even class member pointers
- Over 350 source code functions code on every topic
- OOP constructs dissected and implemented in C
- Interviews with leading C++ experts
- Valuable money–saving coupons on developer products
- Free source code disk
- Disk includes: Reusable code libraries over 350 source code functions you can use to protect and enhance your applications
- Memory debugger
Read C++ Pointers and Dynamic Memory Management and learn how to combine the elegance of object–oriented programming with the power of pointers and dynamic memory!

I came across several books on pointers bought from amazon and elsewhere and i must say, i was more confused than when i started.
As for Mr Daconta's book, it is fantastic. Even after 20 years or so, his information is still valid and it makes perfect sense. The way he explains everything in his no nonsense approach just makes him the perfect teacher if you want to learn. Some parts of the book featuring C++ are outdated but you know exactly where he is coming from because of how he explains and unravels the complexities surrounding pointers. If you want to learn pointers fast, in clear English, then buy this book..
of pointer operations, he gives powerful insight into the inner
workings of the compiler and c++ data structure (class) modeling.
I've owned the book for two months, and have read it cover to
cover twice. I can't count the number of times I've used
it just as a reference. I can honestly say that I've been using the
book more often then I do my BC 4.5 help files.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who sometimes fumbles
a pointer function, or to anyone who is wise enough to recognize
just how much power pointers can delever to your developement
efforts. If you only buy one book this year I would choose
Michael's above all others for the intermediate to advance programmer.
His in depth discussions of memory management and the tasks to be performed to ensure C++ program reliablity are essential knowledge for anyone planning to pursue a C++ implementation. Excellent code examples with explanations.
